This book was conceived in tears. Between its beginning and end lies a grave, in which was laid a beloved wife. Her heart was burdened with the needs of the Sudan. She seemed to live to make the needs known to the Church, and to rouse Christiandom to a crusade. The writer of the book was the pioneer who visited and surveyed the land: she was the prophetess of the venture.
I can never forget her first visit to me, to open my eyes, to the Sudan. I was laid aside. As she left she said: 'You are resting. How I wish I could rest.' She could not rest, for the call of those Christless millions. But God has given her rest now. She rests from her labours, and her works do follow her. The evangelisation of the Sudan will be her work. If we may believe that the departed concern themselves with our world and its affairs, I am sure that she is in heaven labouring for the Sudan, and beseeching our Lord to intervene, to rouse His Church, to send His apostles to those Pagans who are drifting to Islam because His messengers tarry so long.
Dr. Kumm is doing her work and his own.
